SoWa Art Walk
Sunday, May 15 • 11 a.m. – 6 p.m.
The SoWa Art Walk is this weekend. The studio buildings at 450 Harrison Avenue (and all the others) will be open; you can browse independent artists’ studios as well as the galleries. Many of the neighborhood stores and restaurants will be participating with sales as well. Plus, there’s the SoWa Open Market, SoWa Vintage Market, and SoWa Farmer’s Market.
Here’s a sampling of work I love. I’ve included friends (Robert Knight), much adored artisans (Isabelle Abramson), and new obsessions (Amy Montali).

CLOSED: Walker Contemporary, 450 Harrison Avenue, SoWa
Stephanie Walker has decided to close her SoWa gallery, Walker Contemporary. The gallery closed at the end of April, and Stephanie is heading back to L.A. in the fall. She’ll stay submerged in the art world, of course, and already has plenty of projects lined up, including the release of a limited edition fine art print, curating exhibitions in new and unusual locations, and continuing to work with clients.

I still adore the paintings by Elisa Johns, whom Walker represents, that I blogged about two years ago:
